Every so often I come across an illustrator whose work leaves me speechless, an illustrator that were it not for the love of drawing, I would just pick up my tale and run. The truth is it would probably take me many life times before I ever came close to this level of craftsmanship, even in my dreams.

Atula Siriwardane is just such a master. http://www.comicartfans.com/GalleryDetail.asp?GCat=8718
I love Mr. Siriwardane's use of line, the elegance of his illustrations and the humility with which he views himself, but most of all I admire his determination to excel in his craft and his grace in the way he takes and offers critiques. Were I a comic book publisher I would scarf him up before my competitors discovered him.
